Google’s Zero Team Finds Bugs In Apple’s iMessage App

Posted by at 4:54 pm on July 30, 2019

A team of bug-hunters at Google have shared details of five flaws in Apple’s iMessage software that could make its devices vulnerable to attack.

In one case, the researchers said the vulnerability was so severe that the only way to rescue a targeted iPhone would be to delete all the data off it.

Another example, they said, could be used to copy files off a device without requiring the owner to do anything to aid the hack.

Apple released fixes last week.

But the researchers said they had found a sixth problem which they reported to Apple, which had not been addressed in the last update to the iOS.
